Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On November 4, 2021, Omega Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a lease (the “Lease”) with ARE-MA Region No, 94, LLC (the “Landlord”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to lease an aggregate of approximately 89,246 rentable square feet of office and laboratory space located at One Charles Park, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 02142 (the “Premises”).


The term of the Lease is estimated to begin on December 15, 2022 and end on January 1, 2037 subject to certain extension rights. The term of the Lease will commence on the earlier of (i) the date the Landlord delivers the Premises to the Company with the tenant improvements substantially completed and (ii) the date in which the Landlord could have delivered the Premises to the Company, but for the Company’s delays, and last for a period of one hundred and eighty (180) months. Pursuant to the terms of the Lease, delivery of the Premises is conditioned upon Landlord acquiring fee title to the property or entering into a master lease to become the master lessee of the Property (the “Condition Precedent”) and, if it is not satisfied by January 26, 2022, the Lease may be terminated by the Landlord or Company by delivery of written notice to the other on or before February 2, 2022. The Lease provides that base rent for the Premises will be $115.00 per square foot, subject to an annual upward adjustment of 3% of the then current rental rate, starting on the first anniversary of the first payment of rent under the Lease, and other potential adjustments based on the Company’s utilization of certain tenant improvement allowances.


The Lease contains customary representations and warranties, covenants, obligations and indemnities in favor of either party.
